Yes. That's very telling, isn't it?
Not really, no. Look through the history of those threads, you'll find that there's a certain subset of people here that think EVERY Star Trek book is outstanding, and their definition of 'poor' is voting above average.

Not just in the Lit forum, happens in most of the tv/movie threads as well. Everything's awesome or sucks, not much room for something just being ok...

Given how review threads usually go in here, the general tone and comments in this thread are a pretty good indication that it was not as well received as some of the previous books. Can draw your own conclusions about the worth of the voting buttons from there, but if you consider that most threads only draw a few negative votes, 1/3rd negative still means something by that standard...
Given that Halliwell has made clear his dislike of this book I think his comment was more along the lines of the fan audience on here being happier to overlook its flaws than the general audience on Amazon who don't follow the book series to the same extent.

Personally as mentioned I'm not a big fan of the book but I don't think it's a disaster like the last two Titan books. The DS9 bits are mainly fine if a bit predictable.
Yep. That's exactly what I meant. And I agree with you. This book was better than the last two Titan books.
